Yesterday, one of our best friends jumped onto the "three-children-bandwagon"!! Of course, we ran up to the hospital as soon as we got the "OK" from the tired momma! It's been a while since I held a newborn. Boy, do they feel so nice. With their tiny smushed up faces, all bundled up, sleeping away in your arms, not a care in the world! I didn't want to give her up. She made Lillian seem so old, big, and heavy!!!
I couldn't help but miss it so bad and it really gave me baby fever. Trust me, I felt crazy too. I mean, I have three of 'em already! I'm open to more children but I'm just getting my body back. Well, kind of...as soon a 'little bit' is ready to give me up - and I'm totally ready if ya know what I mean. And I don't really like being pregnant. And I'm finally getting good sleep regularly again.
Luckily, I went to the zoo with my two preggers cousins. It helped a lot, needless to say! They are super positive girls, but the pregnancies are wearing on them already. Heartburn, swollen ankles, braxton hicks contractions, fatigue, can't bend over, etc. It quickly jerked me back into reality!
Does that feeling go away eventually? The baby fever??? When do you know your family is complete?
OMG.........I'm feeling it again just lookin' at that picture!!! Can I take her home....please?.... pretty please!?!?!
